VANTUG Community Event coming up on Tue Feb 20, 2007

This was emailed to me by Graham Jones, President of VANTUG

The VANTUG Community Launch has been scheduled for 6:30pm (welcome time 6pm) Tuesday, February 20th at the Holiday Inn Downtown, 1110 Howe Street, Vancouver. It is very important that we make this a successful event. A lot of kudos is associated with these events when it comes to MSFT. So encourage your friends and colleagues to attend.

There will be 4 topics:

Vista (Jose Pereira)
Exchange 2007 (Doug Cowie)
Framework 3.0 (Sergio Aquino)
Sharepoint 2007/Groove (Ciarana McAuliffe)

Each session will be roughly 40 mins with approx. 20 mins devoted to presentation/demos and 20 mins to Q&A/discussion. This is a community event so I would like to see as much audience participation as possible. Although we have presenters I want us all to benefit from the entire knowledge/experience/interest in the room. The presenters will be largely responsible for the presentation content but since this is a “community” event, if you wish, I would like you to reply to this email with content suggestions for any or all of the topics and we will do our best to incorporate the most popular.

My target attendance is a minimum of 150. Let’s show MSFT and Culminis that we are worthy of the high standing that we have with both those organizations.
